Hello Matthew

> Can you clarify?

The 'mess' I talked about in my previous message, consisted of a whole
bunch of error messages, quickly rolling over a black screen. The most
frequently observed kind of message was like this:
[ 2369.165361] Buffer i/o error on device sr0,  logical block 843904.
Via another user group, it has become clear to me that 'sr0' refers to
the CD ROM.

> You can try decreasing the speed to 8x.
> Higher speeds have higher error rates.
Thx. for this useful advise.

Respectfully Yours,
